by Staff on November 24, 2016

MSN059, the first of three Airbus A350-1000 development aircraft to fly in the flight-test program for the new A350 XWB version, landed at Toulouse Blagnac Airport in southwestern France at 3:00 p.m. local time on November 24 after successfully completing a first flight of four hours and 18 minutes.

The aircraft will be based at Lufthansa’s secondary hub at Munich Airport, along with nine others of the 25 A350-900s it has ordered to date.

Baltimore will be the fourth East Coast destination added by Alaska from its Southern California focus city of San Diego since 2012.
